Here’s The Paint Color You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere This Year

A new year brings new trends, but I have a feeling this one, in particular, you’re not going to grow tired of because it’s so much more than a passing phase. Choosing what colors to have in your home is no easy feat, but once you see how well the new “it” neutral does in any and every room, you’re going to be sold.

The stylish folks over at Country Living have said that mushroom is going to be the shade of 2017. And I can see why they’re calling this contest early. This neutral isn’t grey and it’s not taupe, so it’s a different take on the kind of neutral tones you’re used to seeing.

Designer Erin Martin had this to say of the color, “This beige may be neutral, but I swear it has medicinal calming, qualities.” We see what she means.

Country Living points out that there are plenty of places you can use it around the interior of your home. Use it on trim, cabinetry, as statement tile in a backsplash—the possibilities are really endless.

Get a load of this hue in action so your search for the perfect paint color can finally come to an end. I mean, this isn’t the most popular shade of 2017 for nothing, after all!

A place where you can read, relax and chat with friends and family deserves to have a calming, inviting wall color.

Incorporating this color into your home doesn’t have to stop at your wall color. You can sprinkle splashes of mushroom in through your furniture and accessory choices, too, especially if you’re looking for classic pieces in neutral colors that you won’t grow tired of.
